Sketch Comedy Writing

Orange County Crazies presents:

Introduction to Sketch Comedy Writing

Join Cherie Kerr, award-winning film director and sketch comedy writer, and a small group of up to four people, over an all-day session where you will master the easy-to-learn eight-step “fast and funny formula” for writing solid comedy sketches. 

Lessons culled from Kerr’s book: “Build To Laugh: How to Write Sketch Comedy with the Fast and Funny Formula,” will come to life during this in-person session where students discover the various reasons/categories of what makes people laugh and how to tap into one’s comedic “brand.” Students will also learn how to harness his/her comedic voice and write to his/ her satirical points of view. This in-person class is being held at the OC Crazies theater., the De Pietro Performance Center. 

Lessons enable students to build a sketch from scratch to the big finish! And, should each writer wish to stage a show featuring his/her sketches, that opportunity is also offered.
